## Homework Statement

A loop-the-loop machine has radius 18m. What is the minimum speed at which a cart must travel so that it will safely loop the loop?

## Homework Equations

centripetal acceleration: v^2/r

velocity=(2r*pi)/t

Perhaps more?

## The Attempt at a Solution

To be honest, my main problem is that I'm not really sure where to start. I calculated the displacement a cart must travel, i.e. the circumference of the diameter, but I don't know what to do next..
